Our Campaign Story

ends 28 Jul 2017, 11:59 PM

Whenever I participate in a run, I want to do so for a cause and help raise some support for something I care about and that I feel could help make the world a kinder, more just or beautiful place. Runs are not about the goody bags but the good we can do through our participation.

I will run this race to give thanks that my family members who are survivors. I will also run in memory of those who fought a good fight but were taken home. Cancer touches so many of us and like many diseases, can be prevented or managed if identified early. So I run also for awareness of early detection screening and more fundamentally to remind myself and others that good health: nutrition, rest, exercise and most importantly a merry and grateful heart, is often the best preventive medicine.
